AimThis study examined the influence of teachers, mothers, and children themselves on weight misperceptions of preschool children.BackgroundPreschool children should have correct perceptions of their weight and develop a positive body image and healthy weight-control behaviors throughout childhood.MethodsThis study used a descriptive cross-sectional design based on the biopsychosocial model. We analyzed 388 triads of Korean children aged 3–6 years, their mothers, and teachers.ResultsChildren's body mass index (BMI) and weight satisfaction, mothers' BMI; teachers' education level, BMI, perception of and satisfaction with children's weight, body image, and attitude toward obesity were predictors of children underestimating their weight. Mothers' education level and BMI; teachers' BMI, satisfaction with children's weight, and body image were predictors of children overestimating their weight.ConclusionsTeachers influence weight misperceptions of preschool children. Intervention programs for teachers should incorporate more accurate perceptions of children's weight and promote healthy body image.
